Favorite albums through the first half of 2013: Kanye West- Yeezus Justin Timberlake- The 20/20 Experience The National- Trouble Will Find Me Daft Punk- Random Access Memories Disclosure- Settle How to Destroy Angels- Welcome Oblivion Yo La Tengo- Fade Atoms for Peace- AMOK Phoenix- Bankrupt!
Honorable mentions who I need a little more time with whom I imagine will end up on my end of the year list: Boards of Canada, Camera Obscura, Chance the Rapper, David Bowie, Devendra Banhart, Eleanor Friedberger, Foals, Indians, James Blake, Phosphorescent, and Sigur Rós.
Excited for new releases from Run the Jewels, Nine Inch Nails, Neko Case, CHVRCHES, MGMT, Volcano Choir, and Justin Timberlake. I'm casually optimistic about Magna Carta Holy Grail. I'm also excited about prospective releases from Earl Sweatshirt, Arcade Fire, and Haim.
I recognize that thus far my list is fairly BNM-y, but for whatever reason, I've only been able to get myself to listen to Modern Vampires of the City once.
Halfway through 2013. If the year ended today, this would be my top 10:
1. Deafheaven - Sunbather 2. Kanye West - Yeezus 3. French Films - White Orchid 4. Daft Punk - Random Access Memories 5. Daughter - If You Leave 6. Atom TM - HD 7. The National - Trouble Will Find Me 8. Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires of the City 9. The Knife - Shaking the Habitual 10. Data Romance - Other
